UFC/Spike TV to Counterprogram Strikeforce/CBS with 2-hour Special

Quote:
Headlining bouts from UFC 101 through UFC 103 will air Nov. 7 on Spike TV at 9 p.m., the same time and date that Strikeforce will be making its debut on CBS.

Spike TV announced Wednesday that it will air the UFC 102 main event between Randy Couture and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, the UFC 103 main event between Vitor Belfort and Rich Franklin, and UFC 101’s featured bouts between Forrest Griffin and Anderson Silva and between B.J. Penn and Kenny Florian. The bouts, which have not appeared on cable, will be part of a two-hour telecast titled “UFC Main Events.”

Meanwhile, on CBS, No. 1-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko will meet an undefeated Brett Rogers. Also on the Strikeforce/M-1 Global co-promoted card is a middleweight title fight between Jake Shields and Jason "Mayhem" Miller.

UFC counter programs everything to do with mma. They would counter program every time Scott Coker took a dump if they could. I don't see how they expect the sport to grow when they keep doing this.

Yeah but I mean Strikeforce would have been so much better off if they had spent the money on Tito and let the UFC have Fedor.

That's cool. I've seen all those fights but it'll make for good watching on the PVR... after the CBS show. Besides Fedor, im interested in seeing how the production turns out this time around.
